The Hollowgate Hill Methodist Chapel was built in 1867 to serve in the Scotter Primitive Methodist Circuit, and replaced an earlier chapel of 1837.

The chapel closed in 1979 and has now been converted into apartments.

Only the chancel arch and the remains of a chancel window survive from the medieval building.

The church of St Andrew in Willoughton was rebuilt in 1794.

There is monument to Nicholas Sutton (died 1602) in the chancel.

This eighteenth-century vamping horn displayed at the west end of the nave is one of only six survivors to be found in English churches.

Six foot long and with an eighteen inch diameter trumpet, it was probably used to summon worshippers to prayer.

The horn was supposedly audible a mile away.

Willoughton lies 3 miles south of Kirton Lindsey.

The Knights Templar founded a preceptory there during the reign of King Stephen. After the suppression of the order in 1312 the site passed to the Knights Hospitaller in 1338 and King’s College, Cambridge in 1540.

Earthworks remain.
